$2000 Household Goods Grant Scheme - New Homes

From 1 October 2016, in addition to the $26 000 First Home Owner Grant (FHOG), eligible first home owners of new homes will be entitled to a grant of up to $2000 for the purchase of household goods for use in that home.

The Household Goods Grant Scheme (HGGS) is effective from 1 September 2016. This means that first home buyers entitled to the FHOG who enter into a contract to build or purchase a new home on or after 1 September 2016 will be entitled to the grant.

Eligible applicants will be able to use the grant to purchase household goods such as white and brown goods, indoor and outdoor furniture, curtains and blinds, manchester and kitchenware. The grant will only be available where eligible goods are purchased from a Territory enterprise.

Further information about the grant, including eligibility criteria, the type of goods that can be purchased and from where, is available on the Territory Revenue Office webpage under the Home Owner Incentives link.
